This guide is a resource for Peace Corps Volunteers and their community partners to plan, design, implement and assess local service or volunteerism activities.

The aim of the V2 Action Guide is to support existing or new host country volunteerism efforts. Applying a service learning approach when possible, this publication shows volunteers how to add value to their capacity building work by helping participants in volunteer activities identify learning goals and integrate reflection (learning) in their work.

Part 1 of the guide is an overview and introduction to the elements of service learning along with important cultural considerations.

Part 2 is a step by step guide for creating service learning projects with suggested resources and provides a real life example of the process. Part

3 is a template that can be adapted, translated, and used by local groups or organizations to design their own service activities. This guide references specific helpful resources in many other ICE publications available on the Peace Corps on-line library: http://www.peacecorps.gov/index.cfm?shell=library.comdev
